Finished Kitchen

Finished the kitchen in July, it only took me 2 years. This was a great learning experience (not that I am ever going to do this again) and a lot fun and at times a little frustration for taking so long. But it was worth it. White Ash face frames, doors, and I made the veneer which I applied to the sides of the plywood cabinets. I applied a pecan stain and wipe on polyurethane finish. Also made the window and door trim along with the chair rail. The cart was fun to build and I like how the butcher block top came out. Hope you enjoy the pictures.

That looks quite nice good job finishing it up. I’m in the ‘I’ll never scratch build kitchen cabinets with a Ryobi 3000 table saw again’ club.
